Green-e Climate Program Development

Green-e Climate was developed through an extensive stakeholder process in order to ensure that all voices are heard and that all substantive issues raised during a standard-setting process are addressed.

The Green-e Climate Standard was developed through extensive consultations with environmental groups, greenhouse gas expert organizations and stakeholders. The stakeholder consultations were open to all interested parties. The current and previous drafts of the Green-e Climate Standard, stakeholder comments and the response to comments can be found below.

In addition, specific stakeholder consultations are held on the endorsement of GHG Programs. The materials for these stakeholder consultations along with comments received and responses to the comments can also be found below.
